MN Reads: "Beginnings: the Homeward Journey of Donovan Manypenny" by Thomas Peacock

Nov 22, 2018

Thomas Peacock says it was an idea he had years and years ago -- but he says the first manuscript was "horrible."

Years later, he's revisited the idea and the result is a luminous coming-home story.

Even though it's draped over the framework of a traditional story of the Ojibwe migration west, Beginnings is very much an account of the universal search for home, family, identity and belonging.

Beginnings: the Homeward Journey of Donovan Manypenny is published by Holy Cow Press.
